Re: IndyCar Back to Richmond

USAC's biggest mistake happened when they took the dirt tracks off the championship trail, more or less to appease the road racing crowd. Dan Gurney, Jim Hall, Pat Patrick, Rodger Penskie and other...

Re: Usac: 10-race east coast sprint campaign debuts tomorrow

Good show. I wish they would have run sprint feature first but overall I enjoyed the show. I was impressed with how many people stayed for sprint feature as cold as it got. Not a bad car count as...

Re: Usac: 10-race east coast sprint campaign debuts tomorrow

Good luck to all who are working to make this deal a success. Its a three hour drive each way for me, but it is well worth it to support traditional sprint cars, besides its a lot closer than...

Re: LBurg USAC rainout re-schedule

Now that Bridgeport, NJ has added a 3/8th mile to go along with the 5/8th and 1/4 mile track, a USAC triple header would be fantastic there. Not so sure the cost to bring all three divisions East at...

Re: Non-Wing VS Wing Payout

Simple law of economics. If you are willing to race for less, promoters will pay you less. When some drivers/owners will run at a track that is offering less than the accepted standard purse for...

Re: Dooling..Bacon..Thorson Press Conference
